Re: How do you deal with overpower in the series?

"Overpowered"? As far as I can tell, most all evidence in recent history has pointed more and more that the power gaps we all assumed were massive were actually not that big. People aren't getting overpowered, they're getting (from our perspective anyway) crunched together. This isn't exactly new th...

Re: One Minute Melee: Mewtwo vs Freeza!

Tao isn't Mach 15 either that's just the speed the column travelled at. I know I can't run as fast as the speed I could throw a ball at. Well yeah, but that's because a ball is smaller than you are. And actually, you can't throw a ball and faster than your hand is moving. The Pillar weighed more th...

Re: Gohan not Ultimate anymore in RoF?

Re: How strong are Android 19,20

Numbers 19 and 20 pretty much unambiguously have more energy than the main cast at this point, with the possible exception of Vegeta. This is pretty much hammered into us. The issue is that energy and power are two different things, and it's sheer quantity of energy reserve that Gero was paying too ...

Re: Gohan thinks he can still become a Super Saiyan

The way I see it, there was never any real problem in the first place, and it was sort of implied this would happen from the start. Gohan's had his potential drawn out before. Goku has too. They've all reached the natural "saiyan limits", limits that would have applied to them. And what happened eac...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

But that doesn't quite match up with my (admittedly limited but growing) knowledge of Japanese. Unless there's something I'm not understanding about it the use of "さらに - sarani ", shouldn't it mean along the lines of "he was weakened further"? さらに is being used as a conjunction there: "Boo did X, Y...

Re: The All-Purpose "Translation Request" Thread

Hey, bit of an odd request... I was going through the Daizenshuu 7 Human Racial Dictionary in both the raw (though not a hard copy) and the translated version, and I came across something I kind of want confirmation on. Page 110, Majin Buu entry. For those without a hard copy (and what I was essenti...

Re: Strength of Evil Majin Buu & Pure Majin Buu

1) If the Daizenshuu helps to establish that it's just the Dai Kaioushin that weakened Buu, then that does more to support that both didn't weaken them than the anime suggesting that both did weaken them. But it doesn't. It says that Buu's ferocity and power were diminished when he absorbing Dai Ka...

Re: Bardock TV Special vs Dragon Ball Minus

As far as I'm concerned, DB Minus is the reason Toriyama was so adamant he not try and move his readers. I was never convinced that he was being wise in that regard until I read Minus. It's terrible, and probably only there to promote Jaco. You read how the interviewer reacted when Toriyama mentione...

Re: Confused about the Mastered Super Saiyan.

If, for example, his base strength was 1 when he entered the ROSAT and his maximum strength as a Super Saiyan was therefore 50 due to the multiplier, but his stable battle power was somewhere around 35 due to not fully mastering the form, and his base strength were to increase by 50% from training ...

Re: When was Gohan a SS2 in Boo arc (again)

He could have still been just barely stronger than SSJ Goku though. Enough to have a decent match like Gohan did. That doesn't make any sense. We know Goku is hugely stronger than Gohan; stronger than Angry Kid Gohan at the same level, let alone current Gohan. If SSJ Gohan could match Dabura, SSJ G...

I just read through some Manga scans, it appears only ONE of the Kai's weakened Buu, I know that's what the Viz says, but Herms has gone through this, that's not what the original says, it's rather vague because there's no true plural in Japanese—which I know from my personal experience as true too...

For what it's worth, literally every video game also seems to think that Gohan was a SSJ2 when he blasted Buu's ball.

Re: When was Gohan a SS2 in Boo arc (again)

On top of what's already been said... Daizenshuu 2 states that Gohan didn't get any weaker. Vegeta says Gohan was stronger as a brat. The only time he was actually stronger as a kid was due to rage boosts. The only time he had a rage boost was as a SSJ2. Ergo Gohan was a SSJ2? Honestly, this discuss...

Re: Confused about the Mastered Super Saiyan.

It's all about efficiency and usability. Think of Super Saiyan as a sports car that can hit 200 miles per hour, but burns fuel quickly, causes strain on its engine components and loses energy unnecessarily through heat. Think of Mastered Super Saiyan as the same car, also capable of hitting 200 mil...

Re: Confused about the Mastered Super Saiyan.

"Mastered" Super Saiyan is no different than regular Super Saiyan in terms of the power it grants the user. It's still a standard 50x boost instead of something greater like Grade 2 or 3. However, in addition to the obvious benefits of minimizing stress and energy drain to make the form super-easy ...
